Vendors Rush To Capitalize On Popularity Of Portals

Eager to address the growing interest in business portals, a handful of vendors are updating their software with integrated content and performance enhancements. Epicentric Inc. next month will launch Epicentric Portal Server, with more than 100 partnerships with companies such as Goto.com, Hoovers Online, StockPoint, Travelocity, and WeatherLabs. This week, Lotus Development Corp. will announce a partnership with Lycos Inc. that will give Notes users a portal called MyLycos as part of Notes 5.01, expected to ship next month.

Integrated links to external information is a requirement of any successful business portal, analysts say. Scalability is another requirement. KnowledgeTrack Corp. next month will launch the Knowledge Center, portal software that can run on Microsoft Transaction Server, SilverStream's application server, and Sun Microsystems' NetDynamics application server.

Onyx Software Inc. this week will introduce Onyx Enterprise Portal, one of the first portals to emerge from a customer- relationship management vendor. The portal blends customer- management technologies with other customer-focused applications, services, and content, eliminating the need to switch among applications.
